Gluten Free Crunchy Apple Raisin Chicken

Happy Celiac Awareness Month! We start the celebration with a new recipe, perfect for the summer! Summer is the time for pool parties, heading to the beach and eating American staples like hot dogs, burgers and chicken. Since those with Celiac disease can not indulge in traditional fried chicken, we’ve teamed up with Amy Valpone from The Healthy Apple to bring you this healthy and delicious baked chicken alternative! Who knew granola could be so versatile?
